Reading Clement C. Moore’s A Visit From St. Nicholas is one of my favorite holiday traditions. It doesn’t even feel like December until that book comes off the shelf. If I’m being completely honest, I’ve got at least 10 different copies floating around my house. Why you ask? Because each illustrator puts their own details into a story I know by heart. Each artist can gussie up the story to fit their own aesthetic, and at Tartan & Tinsel you know we feel the same way about decorating for the holidays. You do you, Cindy Lou Who. Whether you’re a glam gal, a rustic fan, or prefer your holidays modern and minimal, we’re here to help you celebrate!
I wanted to add my own twist to Moore’s timeless classic that would help you get a little of your holiday decorating done! Using Wayfair.com’s gigantic collection of Christmas items, I’ve made an illustrated shopping list for your holiday decorating! Enjoy “‘Twas the night before Christmas” like you never have before! Cozy up with a cup of hot cocoa and do a little holiday reading!
If you see something you like (the St. Nick figurine is my fave), all you have to do is click on it and you’ll be whisked off to Wayfair.com for a little holiday shopping. Then, while you’re waiting for your Night Before Christmas inspired treasures to arrive, you can DIY a few decor items of your own.
